Visit Austin’s Bridge of Bats


Should you find yourself exploring Austin between March and October, we suggest making your way to the Congress Avenue Bridge on Lady Bird Lake to experience a strangely beautiful event that is unique to the city.

Headlining this nightly, crowd-drawing spectacle are 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats, the largest urban bat colony in North America. They inhabit the Congress Avenue Bridge by day and put on a show at dusk as they emerge from under the bridge in spectacular masses to forage for food.

Swarming out in steady droves for 45-60 minutes straight, the bats travel at 60+ miles per hour, blanketing the sky in 2-mile high rhythmic flight patterns.

Watch them from atop the bridge, on the sides of the lake, or from a boat. Just don’t miss out on this unusual and unforgettable experience.
